I am in my red, white and blue today to celebrate America and the 4th of July. Although, as a child, I never liked fireworks and would cry, I just love our country and the Freedoms we have.
This Month’s Happenings and My 4th of July Look
Well, I am in Asheville, NC as we speak, and going to meet up with Shelbee and Jennie, along with some other ladies, ( I think). My Hubby, the pups and I are not newcomers to Asheville, it is one of our favorite mountain towns. So, when Shelbee asked if I wanted to meet, I thought, ” that would be fun!” More on the meetup later…We are staying in a dog-friendly hotel, Aloft, which has a pretty mountain view from the backyard seating area and dedicates the 3rd floor to a track with Astroturf for the pups to enjoy.
When we took these photos, we were in Moorseville, and what else is more Americana than Coca-Cola? ok, baseball, apple pie…Although, I would doubt the claims of coca cola “relieving fatigue” as the mural says. It may make you a bit more hyper with the caffeine but not sure about the rest. I’ll stick to water and Crystal Light as my drinks of choice. Tea at night.
I chose my paisley print dress in red, white and blue with a touch of green. I could have gone less traditional with a white and blue dress and added a red bag.. there are lots of ways to style red, white and blue for the Holiday. Add a fitted jean jacket at night and you’ve got your Holiday ensemble. Not to mention, a bit more Americana! ( denim)
Now, I need to find a cute pair of red statement earrings…. Amazon to the rescue! Love these round pair, this darling 2 for $10 pair ( and the second looks like fireworks!) as well as these statement makers! So many to choose from and so inexpensive.
There are a lot of things going on this month, as it is our 18th Wedding Anniversary and being that hubby and I both work from home, we say, “18 years! Feels like 30! ” ( of course lovingly!) My boy Gibson turns 8 on July 7th, and I turn 51 on July 8th. We are going to celebrate at the Outer Banks this month and I am ready!
Of course, the 4th of July is nearly here and I think it officially kicks of the start of summer, although these 93+ degree days have done that too! We will stay home for the 4th because my little pup Truffles gets so scared. We will cookout – hubby will make burgers and I will have the untraditional salmon burger with feta… its a burger right? I’m not a burger “snob” I just don’t eat red meat 🙂
We will head down to the pool in the afternoon and enjoy this Patriotic holiday. Happy 4th to you!
Looking for more outfit inspo- Check out my 4th of July post from last year.
I know you have seen this bag a fair amount, but it goes with everything and its my favorite for summer!

Soft Surroundings gifted me these white floral sandals last summer. Cute huh?
